Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of The Episcopal Church has won a British foundation’s broadcast preaching prize for his address last year at the wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle. The Bishop of Repton, Jan McFarlane, chair of the Sandford St. Martin Trust, said, “One of the indisputable broadcasting highlights of the 2018 royal wedding was Bishop Curry’s sermon. His words were broadcast around the world and were instrumental in shining a spotlight on the central role faith plays in the wider social discourse, and on how religion can be both hugely engaging and unifying for the public.” An estimated 1.9 billion people worldwide heard Bishop Curry remind us all, “Love is the way.” To Americans it was hardly his best sermon, but it resonated far and wide; he even ended up parodied on “Saturday Night Live.” (Owen Humphreys/pool photo)
